The Short North is literally right across 670 from Downtown. Even during rush hour on High Street, I can't imagine it taking more than 5-10 minutes.

Default Thanks!

Thanks for responding. I guess I feel a little silly asking now but in a lot of other places I've been looking at, even very short distances can take a long time to travel during rush hour. I am thinking of relocating to Columbus and the areas that it appears will appeal to me most to live in are within a very close commute. This is good! : ) Next stop, a visit.

How much time would commuting from Clintonville add? Still under 30 minutes?

Honestly, you could walk Downtown from the Short North if you really wanted to.

Clintonville would depend more on the route. If you were trying to get INTO Downtown during rush hour, you'd have a much better commute. High and 315 are both close by. 315 can get backed up during rush hour, but mostly going out of Downtown. Same with High, although if you took High down all the way from Clintonville, you'd be hitting a lot of lights and Campus, which would slow you down quite a bit. I think 315 is easily doable 30 minutes or less going into Downtown.

To the OP, better yet, for either commute, take the bus. COTA's #2 runs right down High Street from north of Clintonville, pass campus, through Short North, and right into downtown. The bus could be crowded though during rush hour, but the 2 runs pretty frequently (when I was in Columbus it ran every 5-10 minutes weekdays depending on the time of day).

Short North area has other bus route options running into downtown (#7 and 5 comes to mind), so you don't always have to hike to High Street.

During Rush Hour, it would be quick to walk downtown. It would take 15 minutes max.
